Butterfly Basics Birthday


I am busy finishing up final details for our Stampin' Sisters Retreat this coming weekend, so I thought I would share a few more swap cards I received at Leadership Conference back in January.
Happy Birthday ButterflyI think I have already shared that this stamp set has quickly become a favorite of mine.  This swap card showcases the stamp set so nicely.  The base of the card is Crumb Cake with a layer of Pear Pizzazz and then a layer of Very Vanilla that has been stamped on.  The ink colors are Pear Pizzazz and Elegant Eggplant (there's a color I haven't used in a while — I forgot how much I liked that color).  I like the little bit of sponging that was done with Crumb Cake ink.

Crazy About You Flowers


The Crazy About You stamp set works so well for all kinds of cards.  This card uses not only the stamp set but also a flower from the Artisan Embellishment Kit in the Occasions Catalog.
Crazy About You Thank You
The base of the card is Sahara Sand with a layer of Whisper White.  Then there is a layer of Something Borrowed DSP with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock and a small ribbon piece of Crisp Cantaloupe made with the Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch.  We stamped the flower using Crisp Cantaloupe and then punched out with the coordinating Flower Medallion punch.    We cut off one flower trim and adhered with a couple of glue dots.

Anchor’s Away


Here's another card from the Guy Greetings stamp set — I told you this set is a winner.  This was a swap card I made last month. 
Anchor's Away
We used the Circle Card Thinlit to create this flip card with Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the base.  We added a layer of Night of Navy that was embossed with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  We added a strip of Maritime DSP to the left front panel.  The anchor is stamped with Night of Navy ink, punched out and adhered to a Night of Navy circle that was adhered to the circle on the front.

Don't forget to stamp "You're My Anchor" on the banner piece.  I stapled a tail to the banner piece and adhered to the card front with dimensionals.
I think any guy would appreciate this card.
